We’ve been contacted recently by a resident concerned about an unfenced ditch at the entrance to the open space where Downhall Under Fives are based. RDC has done some work recently on the drainage ditch near the entrance here. This is commendable, and there is some fencing where the ditch is deepest.
However it has not placed any fencing where the ditch is less steep.
This may not be a particular hazard right now, however in winter rains when there is water in the ditch and the sloping ground is slippery and muddy then it could be a safety hazard, bearing in mind small children passing by. So we have asked RDC if they can provide fencing here.
